Simple install. Had to download upgrade to 8.0.5 for Win 7 64 bit which took a while, but no other problems. Will use it for home studio recording. Appears to have all the tools I need and more. Compatibility with other Pro Tools versions is a plus. If you've ever recorded with anything analog or digital before and have some computer savy, this should be simple to get started with. The many features will keep you entertained for a long time.

    Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools M-Powered 8 - Full Version:

    There are Pro Tools vs. Logic battles raging. Overall, this comes with a free version of Melodyne. I found the features useful and enabling. As usual Pro Tools may have met its match in Logic, but this runs well out of the box.

        I really recommend this software to anyone who wants to work in "audio industry" as a professional. I have been using Pro Tools 7 for a long time and I took the decision to upgrade to Pro Tools 8. Make your decision but i definitely recommend it.

          I use this with my M-audio interface. Things work fine. This box came with an iLok which I had no idea it does. I wish the box or the description would have mentioned it so I didn't have to buy an extra one...

                            I am a songwriter/producer, and have been a Pro Tools user for a while. I also used Sonar to handle MIDI tasks - not anymore. With Pro Tools 8, Avid has really stepped it up in terms of ease of use - especially for me in its MIDI layout.
                            I just purchased this Pro Tools set for my church's new project studio - it's working great. Now, if we could just get Avid to go 64 bit:)

                                    So, I had M-Powered Essential... which is pretty useless in my opinion, and decided to dish out the dough and upgrade to Pro Tools M-Powered 8... The great thing about it is that it comes with "Structure" "X Pand" and other different virtual instruments and drum machines for use with a Midi Keyboard... I love it... Buy it... it's pretty freakn' radd!

                                      I don't have much experience with other Workstations, but Pro Tools has always served my needs. M-Powered is a great DAW for mixing at home when I can't get into the studio. The limited track count can be a pain for post-production, but not prohibitively so for small projects.
